Starting January 1, 2014, smoking will be banned at all UC campuses.

One of the major policy changes in 2014 is the tobacco ban on all UC and CSU campuses. The schools join over 1,000 other colleges and universities nationwide that now prohibit the use of tobacco products on their grounds.

Some schools, like Tulane University, plan to charge smokers a $25 fine every time they're caught.
